Shared on behalf of Steve Ford, Chair, Neurological Alliance
I am delighted to announce that the trustees have appointed Sarah Vibert as the new Chief Executive of the Neurological Alliance.
Sarah comes to us from Epilepsy Society, where she was director of strategy and external affairs, leading on strategy, business development, partnerships, policy, user involvement, communications and press. Prior to working at the Society, Sarah held a number of management roles in the charity sector and local government, including working in policy and strategic projects for the Mayor of London and in the Charities Office of HRH the Prince of Wales.
Sarah recently told me that growing up with a younger brother who had epilepsy and learning disabilities gave her first hand experience of the challenges faced by people living with neurological conditions and their carers. It also instilled a passionate belief in her that, with the right care and support, people with neurological conditions can live a full life and achieve their goals.
Out of work Sarah and her husband Mike are kept busy by their one year old son Jasper. She is also a keen runner and cyclist, regularly undertaking sporting challenges for charity.
Sarah starts her new role at the Alliance on the 18th October. For those of you that don’t know her already, you’ll be able to meet her at the AGM and members conference on the 23rd November. Although, I am sure she will be in touch with you before then to set up some face to face meetings.
